The next generation of Crazy Bars is coming this summer. Visit our blog to learn more about the updated design. Current ETA is August.
"A few trips ago I couldn’t imagine riding a bike without road handlebars. But after 4000km+ on the Crazy Bars, I have zero intention of switching back." Find the full review of our Crazy Bars on CyclingAbout here.
These bars are intended for touring on paved and unpaved roads, single and double track, gravel and crushed limestone, and everything in between. The main, swept back section provides good control on rough and tumble surfaces, while the the bullhorn section offers a streamlined position for smoother roads and headwinds. The center portion replicates the top of a drop bar, and placing your hands at the junctions is not unlike riding on the hoods.
The main bar uses a 22.2mm grip area so MTB grips, levers, and shifters fit. The "horns" are 23.8mm, so road components such as inverse brake levers and bar-end shifters are compatible. Stem clamp area is 31.8mm.
Crazy Bars are made from 6061 aluminum and are heat treated. Weight is pretty reasonable at around 470g. MTB-rated and available in sand-blasted Silver and Noir.

Been riding a lot of miles and was realizing my hands needed more. I love....love...love...the crazy orange bars. Can ride hours on end in the saddle without having stupid hand pain. I paired with some lizard skin 3.2 mm wrap and double wrapped the bull horns. Added ergo grips. I noticed i would get looks on the trail so i added some little things to look at....teeny tiny flamingo's! Now the crazy is complete! Spent seven days on the PTC, palouse to Cascades trail and not once did i have to shake the hands out. So many positions to stretch out into. I have also taken on some intense under 20 miles rides with 2800 feet elevation. Solid solid solid bars! Never taking them off!
So many hand position options. I've tried flat bars, and drop bars on this bike, and this is the best of both worlds. Goes from cruiser to crusher in no time
Drop bars on my Surly Disc Trucker just didn’t make sense. I NEVER use the drops. The Crazy Bars were the perfect answer. Plenty of new positions equals many comfortable miles.
Put them on my Surly pacer I've been running drops bars I wish i would have discovered these years ago. I have been riding the inner city in Austin for 15 years these are comfort to the max!
I had been looking for something to give me more hand placement options after riding on a flat bar. Just a couple long rides in but very happy.
